Versailles Junkyard

My neighbor had worked a long time to get his Jaguar running right. I mean, repeated nighttime sessions, in the cold, banging on it in the driveway, up on jackstands while he worked inside the wheelwells. His effort was admirable. And I hadn’t seen it up there in a while, so he must have got it right.

 

But now look what’s happened.

 

A huge hit. I hope no one was injured. But it’s impossible not to marvel at the Jag’s structural integrity. The windshield isn’t broken. The door sill looks pretty straight.

 

Not sayin’ it ain’t totaled, however totaled is defined. Just wondering why he had it dragged back here.

 

Meantime, a new car has moved onto the jackstands in the driveway. Time to file a report with the association.
